In just one product cycle, Sony almost single handedly altered compact cameras market with its introduction of Cyber-Shot DSC-RX1 and Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100. Now Nikon is looking to do the same with the new Coolpix A digital camera. At 111 x 64 x 40 mm (4.37 x 2.52 x 1.57â€³), the Nikon Coolpix A's dimension is no larger than other cameras in its category. The standout feature, however, is its 16.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor in DX-Format inside. Known also as APS-C format, which is generally found on larger D-SLR cameras, Nikon Coolpix A is capable of outperforming Four-Thirds camera system out on the market today.
Quipped with a 18.5 mm (28 mm equivalent) f/2.8 prime lens, a manual focus ring, and a 3-inch LCD display, photographer can also get optional accessories such as the DF-CP1 Optical Viewfinder and UR-E24 Adapter Ring for lens filters. Retails at a suggested price of $1099.95 USD, the Nikon Coolpix A DX-Format Compact Digital Camera will be available in black or silver during the coming weeks.
